A raw food diet will give my dog worms? In our opinion, the presence of worms is not just related to raw food, but many other life events. It is an unfortunate reality of life, worms can invade your dog’s (or cat) body when they smell, drink, lick, and ingest dirt, rotten meat, trash and even poop. If your dog play around in the backyard or walks around where other dogs can defecate, you might not even notice how they pick up unseen worm eggs or larvae. Dogs can also pass worms to other dogs, and even humans, simply through normal socialization. Exclusively calling on real food as the source for worms and / or parasites is therefore a very narrow view of the situation. Please read the related post(s) to gain more insight into the topic.

The downfall of the dinosaurs 66 million years ago gave mammals an incredible opening, and they ran for it, rapidly becoming the dominant land vertebrates. Among those to emerge were the earliest carnivorans (members of the order Carnivora), whose living representatives include the cats and closely allied families, such as hyenas and mongooses, as well as dogs and closely allied families, such as bears, weasels, and seals.
Like their huumans, cats and dogs have their own fooding behaviors. When observed closely, you will notice small differences between mutts, pups, masters and nobles. Some research indicate that these differences start right from the food selection step, when the bowl is offered. The whole food selection routine requires organoleptic attributes of the food such as odor, taste, and texture.
